South Africa's ANC set to elect leader to replace Zuma
In South Africa, the African National Congress (ANC) is set to elect a successor to President Jacob Zuma in a leadership vote today.
ANC spokeswoman Khusela Sangoni said the party had completed vetting the eligibility of roughly six thousand delegates to decide who would take part in the voting.
The African National Congress Deputy Secretary General Jessie Duarte said the final result of the vote is expected tomorrow.
Former chairperson of the African Union High Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, is the preferred candidate.
The other main contender is Cyril Ramaphosa. Supporters think his business background makes him the best candidate to revive the flagging economy.
